Dr. Dennis J. Chew, DVM, Dipl ACVIM – Internal Medicine
Dr. Chew is a 1972 graduate of the College of Veterinary Medicine at Michigan State University. He did a one-year internship at South Weymouth Veterinary Associates and a two-year residency in internal medicine and nephrology at the Animal Medical Center in New York City. He became a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine in 1977. Dr. Chew was an attending veterinarian at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine Teaching Hospital for 36 years and is now Professor Emeritus. Most of his work in clinics, research and publications involves urology/nephrology in small animals. He has special interest in disorders of calcium metabolism, chronic kidney disease and vitamin D metabolite dynamics, idiopathic/interstitial cystitis of cats, and diagnostic urinary endoscopy. He has been the author of over 100 peer-reviewed publications and 2 editions of the Manual of Nephrology and Urology in Small Animals.
Diagnostic and therapeutic cystoscopy in cats is not frequently considered to be an early option in the workup of urinary cases. This session will detail the mechanics of passing a rigid cystoscope in females and males with perineal urethrostomy and with flexible endoscopy in male cats. Normal urethrocystoscopic anatomy will be detailed first, followed by illustrations of urinary diseases that can be documented or treated with cystoscopy. Cystoscopy is useful in evaluation of the urethra for strictures and plugs in males, for documentation of lesions supportive for a diagnosis of interstitial cystitis, small uroliths, “sand”, urachal diverticulum, and neoplasia of the lower urinary tract. Cystoscopy is also quite useful before and after voiding urohydropulsion to document the removal of all the small urinary stones. Lithotripsy will be briefly shown for its utility in breaking up larger lower urinary tract stones.
The ENDOSCOPY Talks™ series brings together some of the most influential people in the field of endoscopy to discuss current best practices and emerging trends within the ever-expanding field. Each speaker will elaborate on a particular topic within Endoscopy. The talks will each be approximately one hour in length, with the time divided up between presentation and discussion.
Designed to benefit those performing endoscopic procedures as well as those interested in incorporating endoscopy into their practice, the Talks are free for everyone to view either the live or as recorded sessions. The Talks will be streamed live on the dates and times listed below.
ENDOSCOPY Talks™ is made possible through a grant by KARL STORZ and are produced and distributed through Colorado State University’s Veterinary Continuing Education Program.
